I Said To The Dog Song Lyrics. Written and recorded by Des Wade.

Des Wade Songs

I Said to the Dog

I said to the dog, that’ll be him
I swear to god what a terrible din
But at least he’s singin’ tonight
Go to him, girl, it’s comin’ down
A nasty fog out on the bog
And he might not see the light
And he’ll want you for a guide
Oh I know, girl, I’m just a kid
And no one knows what he did
Except for me and you
Drink’s always been a curse, ay
But never worse than on the day
With her face so full of fear
Me mammy disappeared

She always told me, and it’s true
What you can’t endure you must cure
Sometimes you fight till you fall
Other times, do nothin’ at all
Nothin’ at all

Oh listen girl, he’s missed the track
He’ll never find his own way back
Unless you lead him in
So stay here with me in the dark
Don’t even let him hear you bark
For his mood as black as sin
Yes his mood as black as sin
Me mammy told me as she cried
When you decide what you can’t abide
That’s when you fight till you fall
Other times do nothin’ at all
Nothin’ at all

The coroner’s verdict handed down
Said he was accidentally drowned
As he struggled in the bog
Now a sunny day awaits us and
We’ll go with gran in her camper van
So get in, I said to the dog
Yeah, get in, I said to the dog
Me mammy told me when you’re a man
To be as kind as you can
Sometimes you’ll have to fight till you fall
Other times do nothin’ at all
Nothin’ at all
